Published Jun 15, 2010At the end of April, we reported that this year's edition of Sackville, NB festival SappyFest was taking fine form with the announcement that Holy Fuck, Chad VanGaalen, the Sadies, Jim Guthrie and the Felice Brothers would all be making appearances. Now, the festival's line-up has been confirmed, and it's definitely a party that looks worth attending.
SappyFest's final 2010 line-up includes a large number of new Exclaim!-approved acts, including heavy hitters By Divine Right, Attack in Black, $100, Julie Doiron, Lullabye Arkestra and Diamond Rings, among others. The festival runs for three days, starting on July 30, coming to a head August 1.
Much like Toronto's NXNE, the festival is held in a number of small venues across the city. It was started in 2006 by Julie Doiron, Jon Claytor and Paul Henderson of indie label Sappy Records, and has since attracted the likes of the Constantines, Destroyer, Mt. Eerie and Wintersleep.
This year's full line-up can be seen here. Passes of all shapes and sizes can be purchased here.
